Rue de Mode is a SCAM!
I also ordered a pair of Ugg boots from this company on line on 12/9/08. I paid for them via World Pay(the only way they would take payment). After I hit the button to pay, I immediately felt like I might have made a big mistake.
I never, ever received a confirmation for my order. I told them I had to have the boots by Christmas, to give as a gift. Following two days of emailing, with absolutely no reply, I sent them a cancellation of my order. Legally, any purchase may be cancelled within 5 business days. Still no reply. After at least 8 attempts, I contacted my credit card company to file a dispute. We are in the process now.
Much to my surprise, I got a notice in the mail from my post office on 1-19-09 that I have a package from Rue de Mode! Almost 2 months later! I refused it and sent it back. I am hearing that several people did finally receive the boots, but they were fake. So, I did not even atempt to open or accept them. I want my money back.
So, the lesson here- only buy from reputable, known companies. Do your research on the company. Look at their return policies. Are they a secure website? If the website address in the bar begins with www.https- it is a safe site. The 's' in https means secure.
Sign up with Paypal. Most companies take Paypal, and it is a
guaranteed and safe method to pay. I have used it on Ebay for 6 years. If a transaction goes bad, they will handle the dispute, and give you your money back. You can use any credit cards or have cash withdrawn from your checking accounts. It is safe. Good luck!
